Technomic’s numbers for 2012′s highest grossing nightclubs, bars, and lounges are out. Who do you think tops the list? Last year Marquee Nightclub/Dayclub in Las Vegas and XS in Las Vegas took the number one and two spots. Eight out of the top ten grossers were in Vegas. This year, there are 21 entries on the list from Vegas alone, 22 from California, and 8 from New York. Click through to check out the list in its entirety.
Steve Aoki is known for some infamous collaborations, from Tiesto on “Tornado” to Laidback Luke and Lil’ Jon on “Turbulence.” His latest team up is with bass heavy electro-house duo Knife Party on “Pile Diver” and the three recently announced a music video is in the works.
2012 has been a massive year for both Steve Aoki and Rob Swire/Gareth McGrillen of Knife Party. Both have performed on some of the biggest stages in the American dance music scene including Ultra Music Festival and Electronic Daisy Carnival. “Pile Diver,” which has been played out along the festival circuit, should be nothing new for frequent concertgoers. But a music video from the entertaining producers will only amplify the force behind the intense bangs of the tune.
The DJ Mag Top 100 awards will take place on Friday October 19th at the Amsterdam Convention Factory, smack dab in the middle of the world’s largest music conference / festival, Amsterdam Dance Event. Another party will take place simultaneously at London’s Ministry of Sound, where the world’s (new?) number 1 DJ will play a second set of the night. Artists like Arty and Hardwell will support in Amsterdam, while Thomas Gold and Markus Schulz will be in London.
Luckily for stateside voters, DJ Mag will be throwing parties in the US as well: Mansion Miami on October 24th, Lavo New York on October 25th, Marquee Vegas on October 27th, LA on the 28th. The world’s new number one DJ will be playing at all three shows stateside — we’ll let you know who it is as soon as we do! Ticket purchase links below.

Lavo’s famed Thursday night parties invariably attract big names, long lines, and an impressive girl to guy ratio — but once you get inside it’s almost always worth the wait. The musical maestro for last Thursday’s event was the venerable Kaskade, and though his set time wasn’t until 1 AM, hopeful fans were lining up by 10 — an hour before the doors even opened. The turnout was a testament to both the exclusivity of the venue and Kaskade’s celebrity status. The same man who once shut down Hollywood Boulevard was now the reason for a 58th Street takeover.
Hot on the heels of the East coast’s first Electric Daisy Carnival, New Yorkers are already whispering about events like Identity Festival and Electric Zoo. However, DA would like to make it clear that there is still tons of partying to be had this summer and the list of events will congest the calendars of even the most dedicated ravers. Starting things off right, June will be a huge month for partying in the New York area – DJs from various genres will be playing at a wide range of venues that should be able to satisfy every kind of EDM fan. Making the right selections and understanding how to spend your valuable time (not to mention your hard-earned cash) is the key to having the superior summer.
As the countdown to Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas crosses the 2-week mark, fans are rounding up their groups of friends in preparation for what could be the single biggest party of the year. Last year’s event was an enormous success on many levels, and this year’s edition is poised to reach even greater heights.
While the festival itself runs 3 nights from Friday June 8th to Sunday June 10th, a dizzying selection of EDM artists will be playing daytime and nighttime parties all over Las Vegas during the Insomniac-sponsored “EDC Week”. So if you and your friends need some help in staying organized and making sure you don’t miss out, click past the break for a full calendar of EDC Week events and planning resources: (more…)
This past Thursday, DJ Chuckie and DJ Vice brought their A-game — and SD cards — to Lavo NY for a night of debauchery, bottle-popping, and fun. We were there to soak in the sounds, which turned out to be quite eclectic and incorporated a refreshing bit of hip-hop into the usually house-heavy set. Vice and Chuckie alternated behind the decks for most of the night, with Mr. Dirty Dutch himself taking the mic multiple times during the night to shoutout New York City. One highlight was a never-ending bootleg of Sidney Samson’s “Mutate” with “Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker,” “One,” “Babylon,” and some Kanye West rap vocals. Like we said, it was eclectic. Head over to our Facebook page for the full album.

We like to joke that Lavo NYC is where our brain cells and bank account balances go to die – and, while that may be partially true, Lavo is no doubt the place where EDM comes alive on Thursday nights. The Manhattan hotspot’s recent roster of talent has been overwhelming, but last Thursday was one of the biggest nights of them all. Dance godfather Tiesto hit the decks for a wild night that was all about the music.
The night before his show at Lavo, Tiesto played for a huge crowd at Pacha NYC as part of the club’s sixth anniversary celebration. While astronauts were in attendance both nights, we were admittedly more excited to see him in Lavo’s intimate setting. Clearly we weren’t alone. The door at Lavo was even more of a madhouse than usual, with would-be guests spilling into the street and trying however they could to get inside. Once we jostled our way to the front of the line and down the stairs, we instantly felt the excitement in the air. Lavo kept things simple, forgoing elaborate decorations for some “LAVO ♥ TIESTO” sunglasses and “I ♥ TIESTO” t-shirts for staff members. Tiesto’s performance satisfied the bass-hungry crowd, keeping everyone’s hands high with a current if somewhat predictable set. Check past the break for the 5 tracks you to know from the night.

Lavo’s New York outpost hasn’t been around long (we celebrated the club’s first birthday recently), but its Thursday night parties have already become the stuff of nightlife legend. Lavo has an unparalleled ability to bring in big EDM talent, and we’re grateful to have been there for acts such as ATB, Sidney Samson and Kaskade. Last Thursday, however, Lavo NY hosted an artist who defies genre classification: A-Trak.
We clearly weren’t alone in our excitement, as crowds lined up early and fought for spots near the booth. Club-goers waved foam fingers and oversized glowsticks as scantily clad dancers — some dressed up like disco balls — sprayed the crowd with loads of fog. Best of all, a guest showed up in a full wolf costume — oversized furry head and all. A-Trak loved it, and the wolf alternated between dancing in the booth and mingling with the crowd. The atmosphere was as wild as has come to be expected from a Lavo Thursday night. (We often don’t make it to work on Fridays.) Keep reading for more. (more…)
